I own a Custom 24 and thought recently about swapping the pickups for bkp's.
I'm actually ok with the tone itself, but I feel the pickups lack output and dont feel that
good for shred stuff, could be also related to their voicing when I think about it.
The thing is I like alot the splitted sounds, and I'm not sure if bkp's would work that well for that guitar in that aspect - any experience, thoughts?
You're also welcome to recommend a set that you think compliments the custom 24, I dont want a really high output pickup, but something that would be more suited to shred stuff,
could use more low end and more chunk to the low mids too.
The more asymmetrically-wound BKPs split exceptionally well. For example, the VHII, Rebel Yell, Nailbomb... I can't comment on what to put in your specific guitar, but a Nailbomb is basically a rip-snorting version of a PAF with plenty of articulation and low-end chunk.
